Abs ASAP

Abs ASAP

Spare five minutes for a quick yet intense workout that will carve up your six-pack.

Body-Weight Workout: Complete three rounds of the exercises below; rest only as needed.

  • Crunch
  • Toe Touch
  • Reverse Crunch

Rep Count:

  • Beginners: 10 reps per exercise for all rounds
  • Intermediate: 30 reps per exercise in Round 1; 20 reps in Round 2; 10 reps in Round 3
  • Advanced: 30 reps per exercise for all three rounds

Toe Touches:

  1. Lie on your back with your legs straight up toward the ceiling.
  2. Use your abdominals to reach your hands up toward your toes.

What it is:

  • It will take only around five minutes to complete, but it will be a fairly painful five minutes for your midsection.

Why it works:

  • Standard crunches will hit up high; toe touches will, too, while also engaging down low; and reverse crunches, the finisher, will zero in on the stubborn lower abs.
